One of the only good things about losing your teeth as a kid is getting some money for it. This father went to drastic measures to try and get his son to improve his dental hygiene.

You know your teeth are in bad shape when you get a warning letter from the Tooth Fairy. A father said his son is dreadful at brushing and the Tooth Fairy had enough.

The note, which the father put on Twitter.com, informed the boy that his tooth had to be taken in for processing. Due to it's poor condition, payment from the Tooth Fairy had been delayed.

The Tooth Fairy went on to say, "we expect a certain amount of wear and tear on the teeth we appraise, however in this case your tooth had to be referred up to the committee for further analysis."

The tooth fairy wrapped up the letter by telling the boy he would not receive payment for his next tooth if it arrived in similar condition.

My dad used to always say, "Be true to your teeth or they will be false!"
